Hash Brown Casserole

I am tired and my eyes are crossing, but I am going to give you the hash brown casserole recipe and hope it makes sense!
I have some medical oddity that I am calling a "night cold." Ha ha! Every evening for the past week and a half, I get a HORRIBLE terrible sore throat. I lay in bed and clear my throat and pop my throat and cough. I wake in the middle of the night and feel MISERABLE! But, once I get up in the morning I am perfectly fine! Hummmm......
Okay here is the recipe. You will love it. I told you about the DIVINE roast. Trust me on this too!!!!!!

Hash Brown Potato Casserole

1 (32 oz.) pkg shredded frozen potatoes
1/2 c. melted butter
1 can cream of chicken soup
12 oz. grated American cheese
1 (8 oz.) sour cream
1 tsp salt
1/2 onion, chopped fine
2 c. crushed cornflakes
1/2 cup melted butter

Place thawed potatoes in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Mix together next 6 ingredients and pour over potatoes. Top with crushed cornflakes and drizzle butter over all. Bake uncovered at 350 for 45 minutes.
The recipe says that it serves 8 to 12 people. In my house it serves about 3. HA...we love it too much!

I am making this Saturday night along with the roast. YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry you are feeling so yucky! Thanks so much for the recipe!! I am going to make it Saturday night for dinner at my father in laws. I have that roast recipe saved for a day over Christmas break!!

Just thinking that maybe you should go to a specialist. I had something similar happening to me all of a sudden. I had a cough and it was only at night. I ended up having reflux and now take a prescription for an anti-acid medication. It worked!
Mine started out as a cough and occassionally I would have horrible heartburn! It was terrible! Anyway, hope you feel better soon! Have a great weekend!

Sorry to hear you are not feeling good in the evenings. I hope you get to feeling better soon.
Thank you for the recipe! I can't wait to try it.

Hi Laurie,

Thanks for the recipe! I have a suggestion if you want to shake things up a bit. Substitute French Onion Dip (sold next to the sour cream in the store) for the sour cream in the recipe. It gives it a kick!

I have the ingredients for the roast and have shared the recipe with several friends. One made it, and her kids (4 and 6 years old) snorkled it up. Thank you for sharing!

Feel better soon.

1. Whenever I get a cold, it's always worse at night. So either we're abnormal together or it's not just you. :-)

2. My family does a hashbrown casserole similar to this every Christmas morning. It cooks while we open stockings and then we eat it. All. My bro-in-law and I always take our time because we like the top to be just a little brown. You know the only thing better than cheese is slightly burnt cheese. :-)

Wow that does sound good. I have just now got into making casseroles, once I found out how easy they are! That is too funny about your "night cold". Hope it goes away soon!
Sounds like reflux. You can buy Prevacid and it is fabulous!

Sounds delicious! I will have to try it!

I am making the roast today. I might have to do the potatoes as well. Can't wait to see how it turns out. I have never made a roast in the crock pot. Merry Christmas!

I can't believe it. I have that too! I was up all night because I can't swallow and I worry I won't be able to make work in the AM. But once I am up it goes away.
Crazy stuff - hope you feel better.

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
